Subject: there aren't enough of these
i agree there are better versions, but i actually think this one is pretty great.
i mean, is there really a bad SJ in early '68? (well, the one on Dick's Picks 22 is just OK).
its just too bad this recording is of only one song :(

Worth a listen, but I agree that this is not as good as other Spanish Jams of this year. For 1/20/68, go here:
Subject: Origin of this Jam
I have to respectfully disagree with Little Nemo regarding the origin of this Spanish Jam. I listened to the SJ archived here at 1.23.68 and the SJ listed here as 1.27.68 and found not one point of similarity. I leave room for the possibility that the SJ listed here as 1.27.68 is a continuation of the SJ contained on the 1.23.68 page - that is, it may come after the end cut of 1.23.68 (ie Tape flip). If that were the case, I have no idea how much time is missing.
On Nemo's other points, regarding the acutal dates of the Eagles Aud. shows, I agree that Deadlists seems to have strong confirmation that there were only Seattle shows on 1/26 and 1/27.
Subject: Dude This Show IS Groovy
Man this show is freaking crazy i wish i could have been alive then its freaking crazy at like 5:10 out of the whole song a crazy ass guitar jam breaks out its freaking wicked man but yeah the feedback does kinda hurt it and it sounds a lil bit choppy but man fucking dead rocks

This Spanish Jam, coming out of Feedback, is in fact the end of the show archived here as 1.23.68 (easy to hear if you listen back-to-back).
However, 1/27 is the correct date (listen to someone say at the end of this cut 'we'll see you the next time we're in Seattle'). Just as the correct date for the show archived here as 1/22 is in fact 1/26. 1/26-27 are the only dates played in Seattle on this, the Dead's first tour.
As for the Spanish Jam, it's worth a listen, as are all Spanish Jams from this period, but not as good as 1/20 or "1/22".
On the page here and in DeadBase 8, the only song listed for this date is Born Cross-Eyed but the only song available for download is Spanish Jam. There isn't even a hint at the end of Spanish Jam that Born Cross-Eyed is coming up next. For what's here, it's just average. The sound quality is fine, but the jam is for the most part uninspired. I'm not convinced that the Spanish Jam available here is actually from the date listed.
